New in town!
Hey ya'll! My name is Shanna & I am from Gulfport, MS. I have a 2 year old female EB, Lily and always have a funny story to tell with her around! I hope to get to chat with some of you soon, and hope that I can get some advise from EB owners so my vet can catch a break. LOL.
I will start with trying to get some advise on separation anxiety. Lily has never been one to chew on things, but now that I am at work most of the day & she is at home, she chews...and chews....and chews....
She has eaten 16 pairs of my shoes in 2 months! I leave her toys to play with & I know she sleeps most of the day!! She only chew my things and it's only certain times, like when I am gone ALL day (at work) or if I go to leave, & she possibly thinks she can go but I tell her no. The vet says it's sep anxiety, which makes sense to me. Bad thing is, she KNOWS she is doing wrong, as soon as I walk in the door & she has chewed something, she heads straight for her kennel & hides. The only alternative I have is to put her in her kennel when I leave, & to be honest, it breaks my heart to do that. I realize it's probably a normal thing cause the do sleep a lot & they probably feel safe in there, but it just seems so mean :( I contemplated getting her a kitten to keep her company but I don't want another animal right now. Does anyone have any other ideas that might help? Maybe getting a doggie door so when she gets bored being alone, she can go outside & play??
